7:13 your time, meteorologist chris sowers under the weather but dave murphy stepping in. did you bring the rain with you? >> not chris's fault. maybe i should blame cecily. city hall you can see we have on sky 6 wet conditions in center city. it's not exactly a driving rain across the region but light rain anyway, and certainly enough to slow you down a little bit as you're driving around through the morning hours. it should start to clear out in philadelphia during the afternoon. as we take a look at current conditions we're at 50 degrees in philadelphia and the winds are not all that strong. southwest at 6 miles per hour and obviously it is on the wet side, that dew point being close to the temperature tells you that. it's an indication of how most
7:14 am
of the atmosphere is. 49 in trenton and wilmington and 45 degrees in cape may. let's go ahead and get you a look at radar and we are going to be looking at wet conditions as we go through the rest of the afternoon. there it is right now. and you can see that it's rather wet across the region and again breaking up a little bit in allentown, those lighter shades of green not as steady rain and as you move down towards south jersey you're getting steadier. most of this nuisance rain and not a lot of ponding and puddling on the roadways. future tracker 6 showing you now the rain between now and noon will probably be clearing allentown and reading as we move forward from there after about 2:00 or so, we are hoping that the i-95 corridor sees the end of the bulk of this rain. there could still be a little lingering drizzle behind where you see the green. generally speaking improvement in the afternoon. and you go up until 6:00 and there is a chance of some
7:15 am
additional shower activity lingering down in south jersey and delaware and late tonight it's pretty much getting off the coast. you can see that progression. we dry out first up north later this morning and then probably waiting until the early afternoon hours in i-95 corridor areas and probably taking a little bit longer in south jersey. forecast, 50 degrees is your 8:00 temperature, 51 degrees by 10:00, by noon 51, by 3:00, 51 and by 6:00, 48 degrees. everybody is going to stay well above the freezing mark and most of us getting on to or about 50 degrees. 51 in trenton, 51 in philadelphia and just 48 in cape may. then we get into monday evening into tuesday morning. there's an area of low pressure coming up the coast that's going to stay off the coast but a weak features comes through giving us a chance of some rain changing into light snow into tuesday
7:16 am
morning. this is going to be a really small accumulation. some of you might struggle to get an inch but the timing won't be good and it could be snowing during the morning commute. if you're traveling out to minnesota, 20 degrees today. 17 on monday. tuesday is the travel day i would avoid out there there could be a bit of snow. and look at how cold it gets thursday and friday. highs in the single digits but by the time we get to sunday, we are looking at improvement the way things are looking now. if you call 21 degrees for tailgaters improvement. there could also be some flurries around game time, indoors probably around 70. increasing clouds 47 degrees and there will be that chance of some rain changing to snow late at night and changing into light snow for the tuesday morning commute. 37 and dry in the afternoon, 36 wednesday, 50 on thursday. mostly cloudy there. and thursday night some rain arrives. and then into friday morning that rain could change to snow. so friday during the morning and
7:17 am
perhaps during the afternoon would be another time where we could see some snow. 39 degrees the high there, saturday sunny and cold 31. by sunday back up to about 40. >> all right david, thank you. we are still talking snow, but spring is almost two months away and in just a few weeks spring will be in full bloom at the pennsylvania convention center. the pennsylvania horticultural society gave a sneak peek of the 2018 philadelphia flower show. this year's theme wonders of water will offer visitors sights, sounds and senses of the rain forest. there will be 10 acres of landscaped gardens and displays including a 25 foot water fall. it runs from march 3rd until the 11th.

7:42 am
in millville and 54 in dover. future tracker 6 showing you between now all the way up until noon we're going to see that rain start to see it clear the northern and western suburbs but still be affecting the immediate counties around philadelphia and counties to the south. areas of south jersey will probably get a little steadier rain that what we're going to get here in philadelphia. but still just news sans rain for the most part with rainfall amounts between a tenth and a quarter of an inch tops. by 2:00 and 3:00 you can see how we begin to see that rain push to the other side of the delaware river and even new jersey neighborhoods are probably seeing an end to it. if you are farther south, at 6:00 there could be light sprinkles around and by the shore it may be up until 11:00 until you dry out. cloudy skies, rain will be ending this morning. a high of 50 degrees is there. down the shore rain pretty much into the middle to late afternoon hours with some
7:43 am
lighter sprinkles possible after that. 50 degrees is the high there. and in philadelphia, 51 degrees. and we do expect cloudy skies today. but that rain probably tapering off between 1:00, 2:00 somewhere around there, close to philadelphia and other areas around i-95. it will be mild again today. we clear out overnight and it's a bit cooler getting down to 38 in philadelphia. i could see some suburbs in the low 30s and winds picking up slightly at 7-14 miles per hour. and tomorrow, sun gives way to clouds. and at night on monday some rain eventually changing overnight to snow. that spills into tuesday morning. this is going to be a light snow event with minor accumulations. some of you may struggle to get to an inch out of this. but it is timing poorly for the tuesday morning commute. it could be just enough to make slippery travel a problem on tuesday. so that is one time period that we're going to have you watch as we come up into this next week. an arctic attack coming up into
7:44 am
that especially for minnesota as cold arctic air is going to wide right in in time for especially a couple of days before the super bowl. 10-20 degrees below average. around here it will be cooler but not nearly as bad. for tailgating, we're actually improving the forecast. we're going to be in single digit highs for friday and saturday but on super bowl sunday about 21 degrees with flurries in minnesota for tailgaters and 70 indoors at the game. 51 degrees today, monday we have increasing clouds with a high of 47 and that rain changing to light snow overnight that could hinder the tuesday morning commute so i've got the accuweather alert up for that. 37 is the high in the afternoon but dry. that one may be a rain changing to snow event on friday. groundhog day. an accuweather alert there as well. we do bounce up to 39 for an afternoon high.
7:45 am
perhaps a little rain mixing with snow on friday. then saturday looks cold and brisk and sunny. 31 degrees. but don't worry, by super bowl sunday afternoon we expect to get back up into the low 40s and probably down into the 30s during the game again. >> good news for the super bowl parties. >> it will be brisk. chilly but it's not going to be as bad as it is in minnesota and not as bad as it was looking a couple of ago. >> your time now 7:45. ralph lauren is bringing new meaning to the idea of warning up to the winter olympics. the team usa's uniforms will have heating systemings built into them. the uniforms will consist of a parka and bomber jacket and it's powered by a slim battery packet that can last up to 12 hours. the temperatures are usually in the lower 20s in february but may drop even lower during the day. former eagles mike quick and
